Split – CNN Proclaims the City of Diocletian «Craziest in the World»
The celebration of the 100th birthday of the football club Hajduk from Split was recorded by numerous international media, and on many Internet portals there were videos published of the recent impressive fireworks over Split, and also around the walls of Dubrovnik. Many readers expressed admiration for the spectacle that was staged in the sky. While describing the celebration in the city the American CNN used the phrase "Split confirmed its status of the craziest city in the world", along with video footage from the burning Split, recalling the glorious history of the club for which the city lives.

"The spectacle was organized by Torcida, the oldest group of soccer supporters in Europe, which has acted for over 50 years. Enjoy the view of the craziest city in the world, Split really justifies this epithet", CNN reported.

The respected French sports daily L'Equipe also reported on Hajduk`s centennial anniversary, noting that Hajduk played Champions League quarter-finals three times in its history.

During the celebration of the centennial of the club, Hajduk fans remembered a group of students who, on their return from Prague, brought the idea of founding a football club which was subsequently founded on the 13 February 1911.

The two umbrella soccer organizations from Europe and the World, also covered Hajduk`s celebration. FIFA reported on its official website that the celebrations began with "a spectacular fireworks display over the stadium on Poljud".

On the cover of the UEFA website there was a headline: "Hajduk celebrated its centenary in style".

The portal ‘Yahoo Sports’ paid great attention to the spectacular fireworks and torches, attaching two pictures and a video from Dubrovnik, on whose walls Hajduk supporters set fire to hundreds of torches.

“Hajduk supporters - known as Torcida, the oldest group of supporters in Europe, gave their all to make Split and several neighboring cities visible from space with thousands of torches” wrote Yahoo Sports, jokingly concluding that "it was clearly not just a great day for Hajduk and its supporters, but for anyone who sells torches in Croatia".
